The Plimsol or The Slipper

I’d be interested to know which of the above – plimsoll or carpet slipper – most people thought was more effective or painful to receive. I was talking about this to my wife the other night and I was saying that at school I had the plimsoll and at home the slipper and thought the […]

Another Dose a Few Days Later?

Did anyone experience this? When you got beaten with a cane then had to endure the same punishment a few days later along the same lines…. I have heard this is excruciating as the skin hasn’t healed anywhere near properly. Surely possibly more painful than just the original initial beating. Also, was anyone told if […]

Public/ Private School Beatings in U.K

I am very interested to know if anyone was ‘beaten’ during the 1950s-60s at a UK public or private school? I generally know they were a lot worse at these schools and the further back you go the beatings were worse at these institutions. My real life story is that I had 12 strokes of […]

Are Females Sadistic

The recent post from ‘well disciplined’ prompted me to dwell on my experiance of being sent to the head by a female teacher.Although his post bears no relationship to my visits for punishment, the fact that a young lady had ‘sentenced me to be caned’ by sending me to the heads office and having to […]

CP and the end of the Age of Innocence

There is a popular caveat repeated often on reality television here that says don’t try this at home. It certainly applies here to the half-dozen posting in a mainstream publication. Some of this information may seem irrevelant and others who have no interest in the American Way may find it yawnable but I hope some […]

Then and Now

After visiting with some friends/relatives back in my day, I was able to get some of them to talk about school punishments now versus ones back in our time here in the South.   These discussions as well as some of the things I have read online including this site has been enlightening.  One of […]

Boys Corporally Punished by Women Teachers

Were any posters here ever given the cane or the slipper by a woman teacher, or do they know of others boys who were? Apart from the occasional reference on Friendsreunited to cane- or slipper-wielding female teachers I am assuming this was a rare practise, at least in secondary schools. ————————— I got the slipper […]

Witnessing Punishment

Whilst it certainly was humiliating to be punished in class in front of other pupils, I felt it was also humiliating to witness the punishment. If it was a severe punishment, such as a caning, I used to look away. I always felt sorry for the person being caned, especially if it was for a […]

Male students – Canings from a Female Teacher

When I was 15 years old, I had a boyfriend who was one year older than me. They had a pretty young female teacher Latin, she was at her late twenties. One day he received a six of the best caning of her that he never forgot. He said that this was the most painful […]

Aunty Janet takes Matters into her Own Hands

Many years ago, much to the annoyance of my mother, I used to run upstairs to my bedroom most evenings after school to change into my football kit. I usually ignored her warning of ‘do you want a smacked bottom?’ as she rarely put me over her knee when I was being naughty. However, one […]

Instruments of correction

Everywhere there are preferred instruments of correction. Obvious one of course is paddle versus cane or tawse or slipper but some may or may not be familiar with switch.  There is a plethora of sites both fetish and otherwise, that describe the implements. There are others not mentioned as often like the ferrule. We might […]

The Lochgelly tawse (“the belt”) in Scottish schools

I wonder if anyone like me is fascinated by the belt and the way it was used in Scottish schools. This fearful implement, the best of which were made in Lochgelly in Fife, was administered to the upturned palms of Scottish school pupils of both sexes, and it was in common use in classrooms until […]

School Saw Six Girls Caned

it’s from 1961 when a headmistress caned some girls in front of the school. it took place in Essex. Now then, we have discussed Essex in the past! It seemingly was quite a hive of activity with  SCP,  pupil parental discontent over uniforms,  pupil sit-ins, etc. I like this one, regardless of whether I support […]

Sibling School Punishment

Did anyone ever sit in class/assembly and watch their brother or sister get a caning or spanking from their teacher /headmaster/headmistress ——————————- While not involving the personal sibling relationship you were doubtless expecting, I can confirm that the literal answer to your above query is ‘yes’. There were twin brothers in my class at Junior […]

Over the Knee punishments

Has anyone found any references to otk punishments on the friends reunited site or…dare i ask it! Has anyone any first-hand accounts? It was the sort of thing that was often threatened but something i never actually witnessed at school. —————————– Who was threatened and by who, were boys ever threatened with smacked bums, or […]

Oldest Punished or given School Detention

Students in some schools are subject to the paddle as long as they are in school, even today. But just who is the oldest person who was given either a spanking/paddling at high school or detention andfor what? ——————————— I have read somewhere of young men in their early 20s – maybe up to 22 […]

Birching at Eton

Having had a long interest in the history of corporal punishment, I thought I would post some notes on the birching of schoolboys at Eton public school in the 18th and 19th centuries, on which I have recently conducted in depth research, as this also highlights the indecency of corporal punishment of this type, and […]

Prefects – Uk public schools

I’m doing some research at the moment into the history of prefects or monitors, older pupils selected by the Head to be in charge, who were given the power to beat other pupils for breaking school rules. Sometimes just younger ones, in other schools any pupil not a prefect. These schools tended to be boys’ […]

Punishment or Correction?

I visited was a friend who is 3 years younger then me and lives in East Alabama which is not too far from where we grew up in the far west part of the Florida panhandle.  She lives with her one of her granddaughters and great-granddaughters.  The great-granddaughter will be a senior this year.  She […]

What Phrase did you Hear before getting Spanked?

Did your parents ever use a familiar phrase to indicate that a spanking was coming?In my case I heard on a few occasions “Get your backside in the fresh air”, before getting dad’s belt. ——————————– For me, it is rather a long time ago!  I don’t think there was any phrase spoken before a spanking […]

Smacked bottom in Senior school

Was anyone smacked by hand in Senior school? ——————- I remember in the 1st year at grammar school 3 boys were larking about in the showers. They were taken out and received 2 hard wallops on their bare backsides from one of the PE staff. ———————————— When I was a schoolboy (1958-62) the leaving age […]

Unusual Punishment At Schools

Good reflections from former students on their experiences at school. One student even said the strap had tacks in it! ————————— yes we got that punishment at senior school litter picking was a horrible job I would imagine picking up soggy wet paper may of done but I cannot recall ———————– being wedgie spanked by […]

USA Student Handbook Spanking

I love the parents letter. We define obedience as doing exactly what you are told, doing it immediately and doing it with a cheerful heart. I love the student handbook. First spanking wipes the slate clean but you don’t want a second spanking. ————————————– This teacher chatboard is worth perusing and helps you understand how […]

Teachers – how did they develop their CP skills!

At the boy’s school, I went to in the early 70s the slipper was used regularly. A few teachers also used a leather strap or a cane. I have often wondered how teachers developed their punishment routines. Did they discuss their methods with each other, or give each other tips of what to do? Did […]

Dulwich Preparatory School

Some twenty months ago three female ex-pupils who had been chastised by headmaster Robin Peverett, O.B.E. appeared in a Channel 5 television program and described their punishments. There was a lot of talk about knickers. I shall be sending quotations from their interviews in the near future. ———————————- At the start of the program, a […]

The Slipper Remembered

I attended a boys’ grammar school in the North of England in the 1960s.Corporal punishment was widely used.Most of the teachers used the slipper, while the headmaster and deputy head used the cane.The majority of teachers were male and although we had more women teachers later, at the time in question when I was 14, […]

Having to wait for the Slipper

What is the longest anyone has had to wait between the announcement of punishment and its ‘execution’? I read a long time ago of someone who was told on a Friday that he was going to get the slipper for some misdemeanor, but that it was going to wait until Monday morning. So the poor […]

Miss Howse & her Slipper

It was 1959. I was eight and in my last term at primary school before moving on to the lower school of a large boys’ grammar. My friend Valerie and I were playing a silly game in class, paying no attention to the lesson. The game involved each of us in turn holding up a […]

Fun Slippering

The phrase ‘Fun Slippering’ sometimes occurs in messages to this board. I have not heard the expression before, and am wondering if anyone can give me a definition. Also, recollections of the great exponents of Fun Slippering (I think the words merit capital letters) would make interesting reading. From what I have seen here, it […]

The Painful Truth

Not so long ago, I lost my parents, and I had the unenviable task of clearing their lifetime’s possessions. In a box, I discovered some old school reports of mine. Among the papers and a dreadful school photo was a letter, written by my old junior school headmistress. I had no idea my parents kept […]

Chatterbox Chastised

I was a real chatterbox in school, particularly during my primary years, and my talking in class frequently got me into trouble with teachers. One day, when I was in the second year of primary (so six years old), I got told off several times by Miss Moore, my teacher, but kept whispering to my […]

Discipline at Home & School

I read with interest a lot of the comments and remarks on the subject of corporal punishment Like a lot of people, I too can offer some personal experiences. This is particularly true on the subject of slippering. I attended a mixed school in the nineteen sixties in the UK. Back then most schools still […]

Old School Thoughts on Discipline

Due to my abiding interest in corporal punishment, I do find myself visiting a number of websites related to the subject. There are those who have a keen interest in CP and experienced it without regrets as a child. In my experience, these people tend to be older and were at school in the days […]

The Mean Girls

This story was one my mom shared with me when I was older, and it took place shortly after my parents got married and before my oldest brother was born – probably in 1974 or 1975. My mom had been a teacher for a couple of years, and she taught 6th grade (all subjects) at […]
